Cultural Attitudes Towards Drugs

timer Asked: Jul 9th, 2015

Question Description

The manner in which a society or culture views a particular drug vastly influences its acceptance by that society or culture. Some societies have made drugs legal in response to their society's belief that each individual has the right to decide for themselves whether or not to use it. In the United States, for well over a century, use of most drugs has been deemed delinquent. In recent years, however, we have seen individual states pass legislature decriminalizing certain substances.

How has society's attitude toward drugs changes throughout the 20th century through today? Select a particular drug and trace its ties to American culture throughout the years. Write a 2-3 page paper; be certain to cite your sources. You may use the Online Library for resources.
